      Pirate Race Productions is proud to announce the Magic Cycles AMBC Race Weekend. One of the only three-race American Mountain Bike Challenge events in the country, we are offering Short Track and Super-D races on Saturday, followed by Cross Country racing on Sunday. The Super-D race is part of the new North Carolina Super-D Championship Series, and the Cross Country race is also part of the Maxxis Southern Classic Series.

      LOTS OF VOLUNTEERS are needed to make this event fun and safe for all. If you can help out, please post up or email me at [email:1ydnzvzh][/email:1ydnzvzh] to learn how you can chip in and earn free event entries for you or your friends.

      The Short Track course is a fast and spectator friendly course that still rewards quality bike handling over pure power (e.g. this ain’t a dirt crit), with a course split equally between gravel road and twisty rooty double-track.

      The Super-D is epic: over two miles in length and 1,000 feet of descending with almost no climbing on a course designed to be fun and safe for beginners on hard tails, while incredibly rewarding to skilled descenders on 5 and 6-inch travel bikes.

      The Cross Country course features tight, twisty single track on a rolling course set between 4,800 and 5,300 hundred feet above sea level. There are no long climbs or hairy descents, just fun, old-school mountain bike riding.

      Pro and Cat 1 racers are competing for cash, including over $1,400 for the Short Track, Super D, and Omnium. Winners of every Cat 2 race take home gift certificates for Cane Creek 40-Series headsets, with Cat 2 omnium winners getting Uvex helmets or sunglasses from, along with all the prizes awarded by the Maxxis Southern Classic Series.

      Super D course video – I need to berm a few sharp turns this week to improve the flow, but this should give you a good idea of what it looks like

      Trail is running great, thanks to Alex Ryan of the Champion Systems Cannondale Pro squad who got out there today and spend five hours executing roots on Hare Turns. The trail is dry, and will most likely remain so no matter what – once the snow melt finishes, the pitch and porous ground keep things from getting sloppy.

      Online registration closes at 11:59PM, you can sign up on site from 5:30 to 8 on Friday, or before the races Saturday and Sunday. … ntid=13389
